Shannon 18 September 2019

Regardless of the season, a break to a coastal cottage in Cornwall is always a winning choice. There’s nothing quite like falling asleep to the sound of waves crashing, stepping out the front door and tasting the salty air and heading off for long walks across the sand with your loved ones. All in all, Cornwall is a pretty perfect spot for taking time out from your busy routine and getting back to the joy that simple pleasures can bring.

With that in mind, we’ve handpicked some of the most beautiful cottages on the coast that will provide the ultimate setting for your next getaway…
